The energetic and rabid networker of Atlanta’s Housewives Lisa Wu Hartwell has filed suit to gain full custody of her two sons from ex-husband Keith Sweat citing the “best interest” of the children.

Clint Eastwood Longs For ‘Earlier Days’ When ‘Jokes About Races’ Were Normal

In those earlier days every friendly clique had a ‘Sam the Jew’ or ‘Jose the Mexican’ — but we didn’t think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem.

I don’t want to be politically correct. We’re all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything.

Blindie would like to remind Eastwood that segregation and lynching were also considered normal in “earlier days” by “friendly cliques.”

It looks like Spike Lee had good reason to feud with Eastwood last year!
